Our Latest Great Place To Eat - Hilliard's Restaurant & Cocktail Bar

Wednesday 18 October 2023

Hilliard's is not just any restaurant, being set in what was for 148 years a famous landmark department store, home to the finest handcrafted goods, from drapery and footwear to haberdashery and everything in between. Now though, it’s become a beacon of old-school hospitality offering a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere, a buzzy contemporary setting, and serving great food and cocktails.

Their brunch menu, for example, has a superb selection of decadent delights from Southern style buttermilk biscuits and gravy to cinnamon brioche mini doughnuts with a warm Belgian milk chocolate sauce and a seasonal berry compote. There’s a Japanese style spicy gambas stir fry with prawns, pork and yakisoba noodles, not to mention their excellent Hilliard’s artisan breakfast featuring their butcher's grilled breakfast sausages, BBQ pork belly strips, beer-battered Clonakilty black pudding fritters, baked ham, a smoked cheddar cheese egg cup, spicy cubed potatoes and thyme roasted vine tomatoes. Their Kenmare Bay smoked salmon is popular too, as is their Hilliard’s super superfood salad. There’s a variety of brunchtime cocktails available Martini or spritz style as well as a selection of house favourites like peach sangria, passionfruit mimosas or their own The Pearl Hilliard, a delicious concoction Tanqueray gin, elderflower liqueur, Poacher's citrus tonic, fresh rosemary, lemon & juniper. All in all It's a happening place.
